to know why a parade of top officials including kathleen sebelius did not give the information. >> if you have internal numbers and you're not willing to hear extra numbers, you are doing the kind of propaganda that this administration has done since day one. reporter: they say it will take a couple of weeks to nail down the details. >> why don't you put out a reasonable preliminary number and show us some transparency. >> we have a reasonable and accurate number as we promised we would on a monthly basis, consistent with the data release that you see other programs. the focus here is understandable on how low the number might be. reporter: jay carney said the republicans want to focus on the bad news and that democrats knew that would be slow at first but would pick up over time. the pressure to be transparent as coming from long time supporters of the affordable care act blasted the broader rollout with cnbc. >> and is off the rails and i think what the country needs right now is honesty and transparency and truth about what is really going on. reporter: oddly enough it was a comedy sho
or are we forever now governed by kathleen sebelius and obama care? is there hope? >> we have to keep fighting. we can't stop. i agree with tom. we have to get democrats on board in the senate. there are senators now in the democratic side of the aisle who are taking the heat on this. i will tell you, people are angry b about the this and upset. the fact is we have to keep the heat on. we've got to keep pushing. revealing, shedding light on all the flaws in this as we have been doing and not let up. >> is there any hope for this website? i talked to some i.t. guys, professionals, congressman price is laughing. >> yeah. >> after hundreds of millions of dollars, do we have to scrap it? >> absolutely. the problem isn't just the website. the problem is the program itself. but the website is a symptom of the entire challenge that we have when the government tries to tell you what doctor you must see. what health care coverage plan you must purchase and cross all of the things through the irs and other governmental entitieses. it isn't going to work. we have now spent pushing $600 million o

not with the president who seems never to know about anything. but looking at kathleen sebelius, she still has a job after this big bungle. the bosses away and the cats are going to play. >> the president might be perfectly innocent in his own right, but the staff is running roughshod on him and not only on him by the constitution. >> there's a question as to how engaged the a's. an article about how he likes to invite columnists over to the white house to discuss their columns and viewpoints and sometimes this goes on for 2.5 hours and not sound like a lot of fun. i think i would like to do that and that is not governing. that's not the president of the united states should probably be doing. having 2.5 hour debate sessions. is the president of the united states and his governing responsibility here and you're getting the sense that he doesn't like the governing aspect of his job. he would rather engage in discourse with david brooks or someone else and not actually run the country. and that is disturbing. neil: on the signature piece of legislation, it's a remarkable achievement and then to drop t
barely budging, but it's at $17 a share. we've got kathleen sebelius. she said this week that obamacare enrollment numbers were not available yet. however, internal notes from the obama administration meeting revealed these numbers. look at this. a total of 6 people signed up on the first day of obamacare. that would be six. the second day, 248. still in obamacare, is this. the top hospitals in the country opting out of obamacare. they don't accept it. what's going on with that, liz? >> what's going on is that essentially the insurers have to have a certain set of insurance plans that are likely pricier and so, they have to get costs somewhere reduced so they're squeezing hospitals and they're squeezing doctors, a lot of doctors and hospitals are saying, you know what? we may not accept these insurers in our own system and you're seeing this happen in california and big states like ohio. stuart: the report i read says 11 of the top 18 hospitals in the country are shunning obamacare, they don't want anything to do with it. it occurs to me that that would set up a dual system, a two-tier

though kathleen sebelius could not do it in 30 months it begs question where they had todd park hiding for the last 30 months, i know that lady on obamacare web site went missing for a period of time. if he is the smartest kid in the class, where has he think about for the last 30 months? they will be security issues. as i said yesterday, best thing kathleen sebelius has going for her right now is fact that web site does not work, because once it works, you can get on, and figure out your coverage is worse and your prudentialiums arpremiums arehigher there willr mutiny. lou: the idea that this is just a web site problem. but not a problem with the model, and misalignment of incentives and a misreading of the marketplace. there have to be incentives as well as mandates to make it work it is possible that speaker boehner said it correctly. this is looking a little bit like ruination for obamacare itself. >> your reaction? >> there are voices that were barn warning, we were called arsonist and terrorists. but reality is, we begged this administration to postpone obamacare because it was n

weren't that great. some were terrific, some weren't. my honest i opinion, i think kathleen sebelius didn't understand this. she got a lot of mumbo jumbo people explaining it and said things that were misleading. >> listen, i'm sorry, look, we had a variety of newspaper reports saying his staff did know. they had a big argument what he should say and how to describe this. the political people basically came down hard on you've got to make this very simple and very reassuring and that's the way we'll sell this program. i just do not believe that the president had no knowledge of that. it's so fundamental to the program about how you pay for this program. >> in terms of accountability, david, the president can say the buck stops with me. of course it does. this is the president and his mayor plan. why does he not fire kathleen sebelius? surely a head has to roll and she's the obvious head. >> well, i believe in due course a head will roll. >> her head? >> i would assume at some discrete interval she will find a way to leave. i don't think they should humiliate her. i don't think it's h

numbers that kathleen sebelius used last week in her prepared staples before congress werethese. 700,000 applications were submitted. that is different than enrollment. and 20 million uknock visits to date recorded to it healthcare.gov. >> will we see those bigger and impressive numbers? >> we should see the numbers in terms of who gets registered for health care. they will get the website up. and california is a big place as is new york state, they managed to get their websites up, even though they are good progressive states. this shoes you how incompetent and enept the federal bureaucracy and procurement process is. they simply can't get it right. look at how many hits a day they get in amazon.com. the president got them to set up his campaign site. when it comes to making america work for you they are out of the stone age. >> thank you. >> take care. >> paying tribute to the veterans. the president with a wreath- laying ceremony in arlington national ceremony earlier. and the president encouraging all americans to honor every service member who wore uniform. >> our message to all
business was an 800 word fact sheet the inherent authority of kathleen sebelius and they will consider the impact of the transitional policy in assessing on whether to extend it beyond 2014. >> i am highly skeptical that they can do this administratively. i don't so in the law to do. that? it is a congressional bill. >> and the past summer the employer delayed the employer man date he can it by providing transitional relief to selected citizens in a law's implementation. but the original obama care law signed in law march 2010 provided for people to cope the plans they had as of that date. it was a rule issued by secretary sebelius that changed the ground rules for which plans was grandfathered in and that little noticed rule is what the president went back on and with every right to do so since it was executive branch rule. >> it was his secretary that created the problems that we have today. she through rule, secretary sebelius did not comply with the statute. >> we'll get more on the president's so- called fix on obama care. is it possible to implement it. joining me is yamy weinste
kathleen sebelius did. come on and say we are sorry and it's not where it needs to be. we are working around the clock and it will be up and running by november 30th. we are putting time into making sure it's viable. look for issa to get into the nitty greaty and say when did you know it wasn't working. was it an issue of contractors? you mentioned the officer for the white house. another interesting guy to look at is the it gentlemen named henry chow. he's not a political appointee. he served republicans and democrats. he will be someone who knows how this website was created through cms and that's the guy who delivers the most explosive testimony on the republican side. overall what this is today is really the gop plan for the rest of the year. as one leadership aide told me, this is the health care holiday season. they don't have anything else to do. the government is funded until january 15th. immigration is not going to happen. the farm bill is facing an uphill battle. this is where they will put their time and effort from now until christmas. you saw that strategy. drip, drip, d
that the regulations by kathleen sebelius were eliminating the grandfather clause. and nobody listened. i mean, they literally had nothing to do with the cancellation of the policies. >> and now what liberal democrats are saying to the president is man up, dude, you have to get out there and say this is the plan. but it is hard to blame republicans for that one, so he is going to keep crawfishing. >>> all right, health care going up for millions of americans as we learned price is may be going down for one political ally of president obama. joining me now, ron johnson, who was able to prevent the tax exemption care. this is something the unions have complained about for months now, saying oh, the bill, the law we love so much, the obama care turns out it could be bad for us because it will tax us to the tune of $25 billion, unions and other small businesses. and the president, first they asked him to give them subsidies, he said i can't do that under the law. and now he is trying to give them major, major tax breaks, and you're trying to stop it, how. >> i'm a very willing co-sponsor, what the
.gov not functional. kathleen sebelius met with some of the so-called navigators in south florida, the website went down. >> this is a disaster. we have asked the american people to behave differently. when was the last time we asked the entire country to do something differently. now doing that it better be right and we clearly know it has not been. my concern is the war of anecdotes going forward. i can't get my old insurance. or i have cancer are so much more intense, than the positive anecdotes. so that's my big concern. the only shot the president has is and people won't be happy with it is what i call a five year narrative. two things will be happening. we'll lower the growth in health care costs which we're starting to see and more people will have insurance. but this is a five, ten year proposition. won't make people happy today. this at this point is only map. >> you can be right. the fundamental problem for him is what happens with democrats in the senate who are up for reelection. we might see in three or four years but that's not fast enough for democrats in the house or senate. the web
they are making that point. interestingly just today, hhs secretary kathleen sebelius post add blog, some shopping tips, if you will, for folks who want to purchase health insurance. the first tip is shop healthcare.gov during off peak hours during mornings, nights, weekends. she goes on to say have your in come and tax information ready when you log on. if you need to talk to someone, use the call center. they provide the number there. usualing people to logon on off peak hours really underscores the point this is still a work in progress. they say tech experts working 24/7 to have this site functioning smoothly by this weekend. i've been speaking to some folks, tech experts who say, look, it's not just about being able to support 50,000 people at one time, it's making sure those people can enroll quickly and without experiencing too many error messages. what would success look like for the administration ? well, by monday i hope officials hope stories will come out of people getting on and able to enroll and aren't met with a number of antidotes about people experiencing more error messages. a l
: on a conference call with reporters, human health and services kathleen e sebelius spoke with them. >> today we're confident we're on track to achieve that. if that changes, we will certainly let you know. >> reporter: under questioning from south carolina republican trey gowdy, the white house todd park offers no guarantees. >> when will it be operational to your satisfaction? >> well, we have a goal that the team is pursuing with tremendous intensity. >> how many more weeks? i'm looking for a number. >> we're looking to have the site functioning by the end of this month. >> another rinkle, four times as many americans signed up entirely funded by the government have signed up for private insurance overtime that could affect the financial stability of the law. later today they'll meet with senate democrats. for the first time they announced they will open to a legislati legislative, not administrative fix. charlie and norah? >> thank you, major. with us, cbs political analyst john dickerson, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> let's begin with the numbers. what do they tell us and what
their options, making 2014 a true transition year. now, health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius will be in atlanta today where she'll announce new regulations requiring insurance companies to treat mental illness like any other illness. i should tell you, this rule -- these rules were put in place back in 2008, this requirement that insurance companies treat a mental illness like any other illness. they've been waiting for regulations on how to do so. that's what we'll be hearing from kathleen sebelius today. >> athena, thank you for the update. let's talk more about this, the interview and what it means going forward with john king, joining us now. what do you make of the president's interview, the apology and also what more he is saying about obama care and how they're trying to fix it. does it help the administration's case? >> we'll see by watching the senate democrats. as athena just noted, joe manchin is part of one piece of legislation that would delay the penalty for not signing up. mary landrieu is among those pushing a new law and the house republicans want to do this
. this is not a relaunch of the obama in care web site. wait a second, wasn't it kathleen sebelius say to congress this was a magic day. we have been waiting three years, hundreds of millions of dollars this is the day and it's not going to work. here is the question. why hasn't she been fired? >> why has no one been fired for this debacle inside the white house? >> rejiggering and creating a war room. jeffrey zions creating war room to look at the engineering. no one was fired. instead what they did was brought them all together in one room so they can work more collaboratively. >> she got up in front of congress saying november 30th this will be done and if not, today is the day, we have 55 minutes until this relaunch and it's not going to work. >> success is only 80%, mind you. if it's working 80% for the majority of the people for the majority of the time then it's going to, with. i think it's a lot easier to reboot a web sight though than it is to, you know, power down or to reboot the trust of the american people what's that what allen west is saying about this. the president's credibility i
the administration's back, still have kathleen sebelius' back. i think they just want to know that on this next round, their concerns have been heard and the problems get fixed. >> well, i think that if you're a democrat who is up for election in 2014 and you're not concerned about how this is going, you don't have your head screwed on right. i think there is a lot of nervousness on the hill and a lot of gleeful anticipation of this among republicans, and i think also, although there has been a lot of debate as to how much of a factor this was in virginia, a lot of people, even on the democratic side, have sneaking suspicion that this helped make that a close race. >> you think so? what's your take on this? do you think this had an effect in virginia, i think there's a lot of debate about that, and do you think this really could cause mary landrieu or any of these republicans -- i'm sorry, any of these democrats in purple maybe red-leaning states or maybe solid red states, to lose their jobs? >> i do, and there are a lot of them. i think the biggest problem, the substance of this is terrible but it a
have every reason to expect that more people will enroll. >> reporter: a battle embattled with kathleen sebelius claims is improving daily. >> i would say, first of all, it is running right now. every day people are getting enrolled. >> reporter: but mark your calendars for november 30th. the white house says it will be working for, quote, the vast majority of users by the end of the month. >> it is our conviction that we can, with the fixes that are being implemented, reach that goal by goal by november 30th. >> reporter: frantic democrats allowing americans to keep their current insurance plans, an idea white house officials worry could undermine the entire program that has yet to deliver. >> if we have spent 600 million already, does anybody have any idea how much this all is going to cost us in the end? >> our thanks to jim. >>> to the philippines the help is not getting where it is needed. haiyan hit last friday object b object blit rating many towns. take a look at the satellite image. this is tacloban a bustling city full of buildings and this is after. very little remains in tha
november. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius revealed figures on a conference call with reporters moments ago a call that came two hours after president obama's top i.t. guy finished testifying on capitol hill about what went so wrong. >> the white house had originally claimed that its chief technology officer was too busy to testify about the it continued failings of healthcare.gov so the chairman of the house oversight committee thoughtfully had helped him clear his schedule with a subpoena. >> this was a monumental mistake to go live and effectively explode on the launch pad. >> reporter: todd park, appearing today with other government technology experts at the hearing which more than once devolved into partisan sniping. >> i wasn't insulting your -- >> i take it as an insult. >> park, while taking his lobs for the website's poor performance revealed the number of users it can currently take on at once. >> the system has been comfortably handling at present about 20 to 25,000 current users. >> reporter: great, except that's only about half its intended capacity.
act. and then the legislation was accompanied by rule makings and kathleen sebelius wrote that rule that then counter the president's promise, right? so there is a process for doing this. unfortunately his own h.h.s. secretary was the one who wrote the rule who made his promise impossible to keep. so, it's part administrative and joanna, i think the question is whether a case will actually be brought. separate from the legality though, is these insurance industry analysts, people that like the kellogg school of management, they are saying, this could potentially just upend the entire insurance industry because they have already factored in the expanded risk pool. and that's why they cancelled these policies because they were going to have these all these people with preexisting conditions now and they had to rejigger the way that they were going to take in known money and their risk assessments. this totally upends that meaning the federal government could spend more. premiums next year could be more and all sorts of other unintended consequences. >> like so many things this was a s
find your social security number -- >> last month chairman issa subpoenaed kathleen sebelius for documents related to the rollout. let's just say he hasn't been happy with the response. >> to date, hhs has not produced a single responsive document to this committee. in contrast, the committee has received far more cooperation, transparency and document production receiving over 100,000 relevant documents from the private sector, from contractors working on this project, the very contractors who were blamed on day one as their fault, not the single political appointees fault, not obama's fault. >> it has certainly been a rough go for the president lately. to add to the pile on, you have one of the loudest voices in the democratic party essentially siding with republicans on one part of obama care. thts what bill clinton said yesterday in an interview, even if it takes a change in the law, the president should honor the commitment and let them keep what they got. this in my mind continues to feed public trust. on a law that is already unpopular. you're looking at me, smiling at
